A kitten rescued from the back of a garbage truck in Pueblo, Colorado has found a forever home.

The rescued kitten owes her life to the Pueblo sanitation worker who heard her cries and searched through a garbage truck to find her one day in November, and then took her to the shelter to be revived.

Pueblo Animal Services/Humane Society of the Pikes Peak Region took the kitten into their care and placed her with a foster family until she was ready to be adopted.

Sarah Hubbard and Aaron Haiduk fostered Ruby, who they’ve renamed Hermione Hope, for about a month and decided to adopt her after seeing how close she became to the their other foster kitten.

“Honestly, it wasn’t much of a choice,” Aaron said.

“They fell in love with each other and separating them would be heartbreaking,” added Sarah. “We brought them home and they cuddled together all the time. They were inseparable. They played all the time.”

Sarah says Hermoine Hope is going through her “terrible twos” after just learning how to jump and climb.

“Finding another living thing to connect with– there’s no description. There’s nothing that even slightly compares to it and the amount of love that they bring us and the amount of joy that we bring them — it’s one of the most amazing things that’s ever happened,” Aaron said.
